Crime statistics: 
Crime statistics, while an imperfect measurement at best, nevertheless provide some indication of the level of criminal activity in an area. To check the crime statistics for the cities of Phoenix, Tempe, Glendale, Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert and Peoria, go to http://www.faxnet1.org/ A visit or phone call to other law enforcement agencies may be required. For a list of all Arizona city links, go to http://www.azleague.org/ To find crime statistics on their websites, you may need to search for “crime statistics.”

Sex Offender Info Center:
Since June 1996, Arizona has had a registry and community notification program for convicted sex offenders. This information may be accessed at http://www.azsexoffender.org/. Prior to June 1996, registration was not required, and only the higher-risk sex offenders are on the website. The presence of a sex offender in the vicinity of the property is not a fact that the seller or real estate agent is required to disclose.

County Assessors/Tax Records
The county assessor’s records contain a variety of valuable information, including the assessed value of the property for tax purposes and some of the physical aspects of the property, such as the reported square footage. The date built information in the Assessor’s Records can be either the actual or effective/weighted age if the residence has been remodeled. All information on the site should be verified for accuracy. Information is available on county websites:

Maricopa: www.maricopa.gov/assessor and http://treasurer.maricopa.gov/parcels/

Freeway Construction and Traffic Conditions Although the existence of a freeway near the property may provide highly desirable access, sometimes it contributes to undesirable noise. To search for roadway construction and planning, go to the Arizona Department of Transportation (“ADOT”) website at www.azdot.gov/Highways/.  Check ADOT maps to find the nearest future freeway routes and roads in the area slated for widening. For traffic conditions, visit www.az511.com/ For information about Arizona Government Links to state agencies, city and county websites: http://www.az.gov/
